Tom is Lestat again?

Nov. 30, 2007by: Omar Aviles

Tom Cruise Vampire Lestat "Bloody Disgusting" recently posted a somewhat loopy rumor that's appropriate for a day like today when news is a little scarce. Apparently, they've heard from a mole within the ranks of United Artists, the production company Tom Cruise recently resurrected, that they're looking to acquire the rights to the fourth installment of Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles", titled "Tale of the Body Thief", and seeing as how Cruise is looking to pump some life into his production company pet project, he may just suit up once again as the infamous vampire Lestat, as he did once rather brilliantly in INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, to continue Lestat's murderous and lascivious adventures. It's not the most plausible scenario in the world but it's not entirely impossible either. What do you guys think?

Extra Tidbit: "Tale of the Body Thief" is a little different from the rest of the "Vampire Chronicles" as it's a contemporary novel set entirely in the late 20th century.

Not altogether a bad idea

Although I think Tom is completely insane, I still respect his acting ability. IWTV was a fantastic film, well-rounded in every aspect. For me, Cruise made the movie and IS the (un)living embodiment of Lestat (Townsend was just a pretty boy playing emo-vamp). I would definitely be up for seeing him re-capture the role (as long as Katie Holmes is not in it).

well...

I didn't think that Cruise did a bad job in Interview with a Vampire, but i didnt think it was he greatest film. It would be nice to see the old Tom and not the "Tom" we now know.

Ugh. As a huge fan of the book, Cruise just did not fit as Lestat in my opinion. Townsend was a step in the right direction, but still not the ideal Lestat. I'd love to see this as a movie, just not with Cruise.

Interesting...

I always preferred Tom Cruise as Lestat, he was made to play the role.

Stuart Townsend however turned it into a mockery Queen of The Damned sucked, although the soundtrack was pretty good.

I don't care who plays Lestat, but it's fucking awesome news there's a new real vampire movie coming out (since.. 10 years or something?)

Queen of the Damned was crap, but I'm all ago with Cruise involved. You know production will be top notch.

Awsome

Queen of the Damned would have been great had Tom Cruise reprised his role. It had a great score--all the stuff Jonathan Davis did for it was fantastic, but the movie itself sucked. I definitely look forward to seeing Tom Cruise play Lestat again. Maybe he'll do "The Vampire Lestat" at some point.

Tale of the body thief was my favorite in the series, and Cruise was awesome as Lestat.
